Star Wars Celebration Reveals New Projects
At the Star Wars Celebration this year in London, Lucasfilm announced significant new projects in the Star Wars universe and a sneak peek at the new Indiana Jones movie.
This year’s celebration rivaled the 2019 convention in Chicago that promoted Episode IX — The Rise of Skywalker and The Mandalorian. Both projects were key for Lucasfilm and Disney as Episode IX closed out the Skywalker Saga and The Mandalorian helped launch Disney+.
